Chaaya Baradhwaaj purchased this villa in 2006
It's a lovely home away from home... a minute from the beach.. unique in its offering in every which way. Always found Calangute-Baga the most easy to leisure around, shop, eat, drink, catch live shows. Never thought we would actually find a property that we could own! I can walk down to shop, i can walk down to the beach till Baga - the stretch takes just 15 minutes, and Calangute centre - just 5 minutes.. and the stretch that's a minute away from this bungalow is the least crowded and most clean stretch across the Calangute Baga beach strip. Had to buy it!
Fell in love with this warm and welcoming villa - a prize-catch at the heart of Goa's most popular tourist destination. Has Two large porches in the front and back, antique iron garden bench, landscaped with enough greenery, dotted with sandstone artefacts of Budha, Ganesh, Parvathy, Indian Temple Art, Brass bells, furnished fully in cane, most comfortable cane chairs on the porches and top verandahs, swings on the front and back porch, Fully equipped kitchen, a bath for each bedroom, stones throw away from restaurants offering mouthwatering cuisine.
We group of 11 friends stayed for 5 days in the villa. The villa was well
maintained and was just a 2 minutes walk from the beach. The staff was very
helpful in arranging for cabs and bikes at good rates for us. The kitchen
was equipped with all necessary utensils. I have already recommended the
place to my friends and will prefer to stay at the same villa whenever I
visit Goa next.
Thanks Chaaya and team for making our stay pleasant :)
I have stayed here two times. The Joshua beach house is between Calangute and Baga close to the main road. You can also walk down to the quieter side of calangute from the house. The place is big and can easily host 10 or more people(we took 4 rooms for 8 people). The surrounding is quiet but is very close to Baga so it's kind of perfect. It has a kitchen and the nice porch area. The caretaker is very helpful as well. I definitely recommend it for any big groups.
Hi, This was our first trip to Joshua Beach House. The house itself was just beautiful. The room was clean, comfortable and cozy. The location of the house too was very good as it was just a couple of minutes from the beach. The Manger was fantastic,he went out of his way to make our hoilday enjoyable.We just can't wait to go back and will surely recommend my friends and relatives to stay at the Joshua Beach House .Thank you so much.
Ideally located in the midst of Goa's most "happening" neighborhood. We could party till the wee hours of the morning and walk back to our "home" - that's what we call Joshua's Beach House. So many dining options just next door, seemed like a 5 start resort with innumerable dining options. 100 mts from the most famous beach of Goa. What else do you need. GOA IS BEST ENJOYED when you stay here !
We booked the entire bungalow for my family and friends. The place is super. Well maintained and clean. The bungalow manager and caretaker were there to assist us on everything. Got food, changed linen, cleaned up the place. The walk down to the beach was great.. just a minute away. We cooked our own breakfast most days, but we also got good south Indian breakfast within 15 minutes of ordering it. Highly recommend for get togethers. When it rained we played cards. Mosquitos are a problem if we sit late evening in patio.. it was the monsoons. But we kept two mortien herbal coils and they were a big boon.. and got the `macchar away'. Viva Goa!
The best time for Goa is the monsoons. I've lived in India for 20 years now, and every monsoon I go to Goa. This was the first time we stayed in a bungalow instead of a resort because we had friends over with their kids. The toddlers just had a ball here and the kids were running around, climbing trees, or going to the wet wet beach. it was lush green and beautiful. The bungalow was very clean and comfortable for the 9 of us, plus 6 kids. We stocked up the fridge with cold cuts, bread and eggs. The caretaker made us very good tea whenever we requested. He also did the grocery for us which was of a great help in the rains. All in all I strongly recommend the monsoons and Joshua's beach house to anyone who is looking for a great time in Goa.
After the blistering cold back home Goa was a wonderful change, we just love the beach. This was an idea stay for my family of eleven. My two kids, their father, the grand parents, my sister in law, her hubby and her kids, and my brother in law. The two living rooms, plus 2 patios gave us all privacy to group and regroup as we wanted. The separate entrances helped a great bit. The bungalow is neat and clean and the four bathrooms were of great help upstairs. The downstairs bathrooms are outside the bedroom attached with the living room which was a slight inconvenience, but given that the bungalow was so large we all managed very well. The caretaker was very friendly and helpful and the owner ensured she called and made us comfortable. The beach was so close by that we spent a lot of time getting a tan. The kids could wash themselves in the outdoor wash room and did not get the sand inside the rooms. Would recommend this place to large groups and families. The place can easily accomodate upto eighteen we realized and we might have travelled with a few more friends :).
About 300 metres to the right of the bungalow is the bustling Calangute-Baga road, which is dotted with all kinds of restaurants (serving up Continental, Chinese, Tibetan, Indian food), shopping outlets and pubs. To left of the bungalow is of course the sea, and the magnificent Calangute beach. Shacks serving lip-smacking food and a variety of beverages are lined up on the beach, and you can also avail of the facilities for adventure sports like para-sailing and water-skiing. From the bungalow the market of Calangute is a brisk 10-minute walk away, and you can purchase all your essential items here from the supermarket. There's also a restaurant and pub that runs 24-hours. A couple of night markets and a flea market are a short drive away (5-6 km).
